Urumu Seshachalam Chettiar, the revered Founder of our College, is a noble man. He has bequeathed his property to poor children.
He started an orphanage for poor children and his service for the people is highly laudable. His orphanage was slowly developed into a Middle School which began to function from 1946. Later on, the Middle School grew into High School from 1951. The Founder was philanthropic, benevolent selfless. Mrs. Urumu Dhanalakshmi Ammal helped her husband in all his endeavours. Hence the College bears her name.
We are celebrating our Founder’s Day every year on 17th November in memory of our beloved Founder.
